Hi Linda…I live in the western part of the panhandle. Pensacola…The doctor I’m looking at that came to Mayo in Jacksonville is Dr. Mohammad Bydon. Google him and see what you find out. Let me know what you find out. Hugs!!!

I did look online and found a neurosurgeon from MN Mayo has relocated to Florida Mayo. I may look into going to him. Great credentials and awesome reviews.

I go to the Mayo in Jacksonville Florida. Have a wonderful neurologist working on my headaches and looking to get a neurosurgeon there. I also see an endocrinologist there for my thyroid. I am being watched for my 9 nodules, one being very concerning they said. I go in April for that and will have to have blood work, a CT scan and something else….I forget….Wishing you the best. Praying hard for you….

I hope Mayo clinic finds some answers and relief for you I certainly will follow your case. I am on a watch and see type of schedule too. I go in April. Which Mayo do you go to?

Mar 7, 2017 · I'm new here.... in Chronic Pain

Long Story short I did not have my MRI done last night due to insurance issues. I am scheduled for an MRI on my brain on next Monday because of my headaches. When they called to get my MRI approved they wouldn’t because I already had an MRI scheduled. Even though the MRI’s are on different parts of my body. They both have the same code so that is the problem. I’m not sure what I want to do about getting the MRI done here. It is now scheduled for Friday Morning at 6:30am. Can you believe that? That is the only time they had. So I haven’t heard from Mayo to see if they cancelled my MRI there. I think I’d rather just go to Mayo and have that one done and then come home and have the MRI on my back here. I may take care of this tomorrow. I hate insurance companies!

I think you can become immune to some Medication after taking certain meds for a long time. I know many benzo’s are addicting. Wishing you luck and keep us posted.

They really didn’t do anything for my parotid glands. My mouth does get very dry as they don’t [produce saliva. They basically told me to buy sour sugarless gum or hard candy and rinse my mouth with ACT for dry mouth. It helps a little. A lot of it is some of my meds. It’s a side effect to a few. Let me know what your doctor says. Very interested! Good luck. Praying for answers for you….
